View Full Version : Show Links to guests

I've installed gal 4.8 but it doesn't seem to have the feature I'm looking for: show (auto)links ONLY to guests.

Can anyone tell me if 5.x has this and if it's stable enough to run on a fairly busy site?

Damn. I'm sure there was a feature for this, or one that was planned. The whole idea of me getting this hack was to only show the auto-inserts to guests (or selected replacements to guests)

This isn't possible?

Although I don't use it that way, I think it does support showing GAL's to only specific usergroups.

Under Categories, edit the category, config the usergroups under "Usergroups exempt from category"

I was under the impression that option just allowed people to voluntarily turn off the links if they wanted to. I want to make it default, that only guests can see links.

Hmm.. the code I tried in "replacements" is

<if condition="$show[guest]"><a href='$gal_link' target='_blank'></if>$gal_text<if condition="$show[guest]"></a></if>

But what seems to be happening is that is breaking the GAL (the word disappears totally in threads, and it doesn't show on the debug page).

Is there someway to get an if condition into the code that's spat out by GAL?
